He went out doing what he liked doing ,but its gut wrenching to sit there and watch someone eat it.

There was a long time dragster pilot named John Shoemaker that fatally crashed at Bakersfield a few years ago at one of the HOT ROD Heritage series events they hold there.
Shoemaker appeared to be fine before a run but suffered a brain aneurysm or massive heart attack during the run and went off the end of the track.
Investigation stated nothing failed on the car,that he was probably dead before he hit the catch barriers.
